Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan
I purchased a 1994 Dodge caravan las week. I was told it had been sitting for ov er a year. I checked the diagnostics without error 12 and 55. when I put in a new battery I had noticed that I could not hear the fuel pump. so I replaced it (it was bad) I was able to start it. It has about 58,000 miles on it. I changed the oil and checked all the fluids. The transmission did not have a drop in it. I crawled under the van and had noticed the tranny leak was comming from a hole in the pan. I replaced the seal and pan and filled it with 4 quarts as indicated in the haynes repair manual. The van does not register on the dipstick that here is any tranny fluid. where could the fluid be going? I know that the torque converter should have 8 quarts but that should not be empty
You should add enough fluid to register on the stick. Just add 1 quart at a time and check the stick.
Don't assume that the torque converter is completely full.
Once you are up to the proper level, test to see if it goes forward and backward OK.
Hopefully the transmission is OK after being possibly run with no fluid in it.
Let the vehicle sit and idle and look on the ground for leaks, watch for the hoses that go to the radiator as they are prone to leak sometimes.
